Users acknowledge that even if an Order appears to be unmatched / unfilled when they cancel it, in the time (typically milliseconds) it takes a cancel instruction to reach the Platform the Order may have matched / filed against an opposing Order, resulting in Trade Executions for which they will be legally liable.

7.  Incoming Payments
  0.  An incoming payment is a payment sent from a customer to Solidi.
  1.  A payment is defined as 'on time' when it arrives in the correct bank account / processed by the credit card processor within 2 hours from the point the customer clicks on 'I have Paid' or 2.5 hours from the initial order being made (whichever is shorter). For a payment to be considered 'on time' it must arrive for the correct amount, with the correct reference and the correct sender name so that it will be recognised automatically by Solidi and processed 'on time'.
  2.  A payment which is not 'on time' is considered as 'late'.
  3.  Late payments can be cause by, but not limited to:
    1. Incorrect Reference
    2. Incorrect Amount
    3. Incorrect Sender Name
    4. Sent as multiple payments
    5. Arrived out with the max 2h / 2.5h payment window

    1. Credited currency at the counterparty's current rate (if they have sufficient funds).
    2. Refunded within 24 hours (Mon-Fri) in line with Faster Payments terms and conditions.
  6. Multiple late payments may result in a standard fee (see FEES .6) being charged or the account being temporarily suspended or closed.
  7. Refunded payments will be charge the bank charges applicable to the counterparty (not exceeding FEES .6) if they can be sent by Faster Payments. Any other method will may incur a standard fee (see FEES .6) plus the cost of sending the payment - e.g. if the payment is from an international bank account then the charge would be the Standard Fee plus the cost of the International Payment.

8. Outgoing Payments
  0.  An outgoing payment is a payment sent from Solidi to a customer.
  1.  Customers can choose whether to have the payment sent instantly or within 8 hours. This is the time period for the payment to be sent and does not guarantee the time within which a payment will be received although normally this will be instantly.
  2.  Solidi agrees to send payments on a 'best endeavour' basis and will not be in breach of contract should they exceed the stated time period.
  3.  For the avoidance of doubt, with outgoing payments (tied to a trade) the fluctuation of the price of the underlying asset has no bearing on the sell contract regardless of the period between trade execution and settlement sending or receipt.
  4.  Late Payment rules do not apply to Outgoing Payments as Solidi always complete outgoing payments.
  5.  Customers must ensure their payment details are correct - the sending party is not liable for mistakes made with payment details supplied by the customer.
  6.  Confirmation of Payee is not required to be used by Solidi.
  7.  Where Confirmation of Payee is available, Solidi will still send a payment, even with a negative result via Confirmation of Payee. It is entirely the responsibility of the customer to make sure their payment details are correct.

This should ensure that if Enumis ever become insolvent, Solidi's funds, including your GBP prepayment balance should be returned to us, on your behalf, in full (less any administrative costs applied by the insolvency practitioner), but it may take longer than funds covered under the FSCS.
  5.  Customer prepayment funds held with Enumis are held in a segregated account (separate from Solidi funds) that is available only for the purposes of holding customer prepayments.

  6.  All prepurchase funds must come from a bank account in your name.

     1. Frequent deposits are defined as deposits which are being made frequently and possibly also in conjunction with withdrawals with little / no 'buying' or 'selling' activity, possibly in the absence of Solidi charging for Deposit/Withdrawals.
     2. If in our opinion your deposits / withdrawals are of a level which we find unsustainable we may start applying a charge equivalent to our banking fees & administrative time to your account to cover the costs of the deposits / withdrawals.
  12.  Spam Deposits / Withdrawals
     1. Spam deposits / withdrawals are defined as deposits which in the opinion of Solidi have no useful purpose and were only conducted to increase the costs of Solidi.

  5.  Frequent Deposits
     1. Frequent deposits are defined as deposits which are being made frequently and possibly also in conjunction with withdrawals with no 'buying' or 'selling' activity.
     2. Deposits in Crypto Currency come with a cost which is normally covered by Solidi, but if in our opinion your deposits are of a level which we find unsustainable we may start applying a charge equivalent to the network fee to your account to cover the costs of the deposits.
  6.  Spam Deposits
     1. Spam deposits are defined as deposits which in the opinion of Solidi have no useful purpose and were only conducted to increase the costs of Solidi.

        1. Multiple small deposits made in a short period.
        2. Transactions where multiple outputs are used to create multiple deposits to Solidi for no apparent reason.
     3. When Solidi detect spam deposits we may at our sole discretion sweep the multiple small deposits into a single output using a standard priority transaction.
        1. In such circumstances the cost of the transaction would be charged to the customer.
        2. If the cost of such a transaction exceeds the deposited funds then the deposited funds would be forfeited.
        3. In all instances a charge set out in the FEES section will be levied to the account. 

11. Crypto Withdrawals & Cold Storage
  1.  Withdrawals are amounts of crypto currency send by Solidi on the instruction of its customer.
  2.  Withdrawals are sent on a best endeavour basis in the time specified. This specified time is the time period for the withdrawal to be sent / broadcasted to the crypto network and does not guarantee the time within which the funds will be confirmed by the network or received by the recipient.
  3.  From time to time it may not be possible to send withdrawals within the timeframe specified. In such circumstances Solidi will hold no liability for any delay or loss incurred.
  4.  Examples of when withdrawals may be delayed includes, but are not limited to:

  5.  Solidi will process most withdrawals from the company owned hot wallet without requiring a specific withdrawal from cold storage.

  7.  Specifically the customer agrees that if they partake in an ICO/STO/IEO or some other form of investment (time sensitive or otherwise), Solidi will hold no responsibility for the timely delivery of funds to the recipient and that should they require delivery in a specific timeframe they must withdraw to their own wallet first.

          - Close the account in question.
        3. A charge set out in the FEES section may be levied to the account. 

12.  Fees
  1.  Buying and Selling crypto currency has no additional fee over the base price.
  2.  Depositing Crypto Currency to Solidi may require the payment of a fee broadly calculated equivalent to the network fees payable when sending the crypto currency that was deposited as the time of the deposit. This is usually the cost of spending the UTXO (in Bitcoin, other currencies vary) generated by the deposit.
  3.  Withdrawing Crypto Currency from Solidi may require the payment of a fee broadly equivalent to the cost of the destination address used in the transaction plus the cost of the change address split by the total number of destination addresses in the transaction (this varies for each crypto currency).
  4.  Solidi may calculate fees outlined in points .2 and .3 above based on the average of the previous day / weeks fees, rounded to an appropriate number of decimal places for presentation (e.g. 0.001 rather than 0.00112919) to enable fees to be displayed to the user before a deposit or withdrawal takes place.
  5.  Solidi may from time to time offer fee free periods. Doing so does not invalidate our fee structure which may be re-introduced without notice.
  6.  Solidi may at its discretion charge a fee for the involvement of our support team to correct problems with orders. Such a fee will be levied at £15 per incident and is intended to discourage careless mistakes in orders to enable our support team to concentrate their time on productive tasks and is not intended as a profit making endeavour.
  7.  For a complete breakdown of our fees, please see https://www.solidi.co/fees

13.  Blockchain Forks
  The purpose of this section is to protect Solidi from the costs of supporting a blockchain fork.
  1.  All funds on Solidi are held as IOU's on the specific blockchain of deposited funds. An IOU for 1 BTC will result in the payment of 1 BTC at a future point.
  2.  Solidi has no obligation to support any currency resulting from a blockchain fork. Solidi's default position is that we will not support a currency resulting from a blockchain fork.
  3.  Solidi will endeavour, but is not obliged, to warn users of future blockchain forks including our position on such forks to give customers sufficient time to withdraw their funds.
  4.  Before, during and following a blockchain fork, Solidi may at its discretion, turn off withdrawals and deposits from some or all currencies. We will endeavour to provide warning of such events.
  5.  In the event Solidi decides to implement support there is no guarantee of the timeframe to implement such support.
  6.  Solidi may pass the costs of supporting a new blockchain onto the holders of funds on the new blockchain at the point of the fork. Fees will be applied at an exchange rate determined at the point the support is activated. In this event the costs shall not exceed 25% of the funds stored on the new blockchain or £20,000 (whichever is lower).

14.  Disputes
  1.  Our dispute resolution process was part of our broker service. It was user to resolve dispute arising between Brokers and Customers.
  2.  Solidi withdrew broker support on 1st June 2021 and along with this we withdrew our Dispute resolution process for Brokers and Customers.
  3.  Customers who have a complaint or dispute with Solidi should follow our complaints procedure (see our standard terms and conditions).

15.  Chargebacks (UK FPS & Credit Card)
  Chargebacks are a process where a User attempts to reverse a payment made to Solidi. Sometimes this is due to a dispute regarding a transaction usually this is just fraud. Chargebacks are expensive to deal with in terms of time and money. Solidi has a complaints process to deal with all disagreements which MUST be used prior to raising a chargeback. We are proud that our complaints process has resolved all complaints fairly and thus ensured no customer have ever raised a chargeback.
  1.  Users agree not to use chargebacks without having completed Solidi's complaints process. The complaints process exists to resolve all disagreements fairly and impartially.
  2.  Users agree that should a chargeback be received by Solidi, without the complaints process being completed, that the User will pay all costs associated with the chargeback, including:
      1. Bank Fees
      2. Legal Fees
      3. Staff Costs
      4. Conseqential Losses
  3.  Chargebacks received without the dispute resolution process being completed will result in Solidi account closure and the users details being shared with third party fraud prevention services.
